"Dear Mrs. Aristone,
I was very saddened to learn of Mr. Aristone's passing. I worked for him at Aquaduct. I was a hot walker just so I could be around those magnificent creatures. I remember one day he asked if I could drive him to Kennedy airport as he would hop from one track to another. He was a very nice man. I was just a young girl who loved horses. One horse in particular loved me as well. His name was KIng Hot Tot. I told your husband that I would love to own him. He said I could for 50,000. Then smiled. I am now 65 and still love horses and those fond memories.
Sincerely Linda Schultz-Torres"
"Dear Mrs. Aristone and family. My name is William "Billy" Hunter Executive Director of the NBA Players Association. I knew Menotti as a young boy when we often played together at Merchantville Country Club. I was very fond of him and impressed with his tremendous athletic accomplishments. He was a steelytough competitor and a great boyhood friend. Wishing you God's eternal blessing."
"Dear Phil, Sandy, Juju and all the Aristone family, my family and I send our love and deepest sympathies for your loss. Menotti was so full of life, one could almost think he was immortal. He is in the picture of some of mine and Nicole's fondest memories with Big City Blues, Bombay Duck, and on and on. Now, he'll be riding and partying in heaven with Jimmy! All were blessed who knew him!"
"Workouts in the morning, taking you to the post in the afternoons, oh those old Liberty Bell days with your Dad and brothers. There will always be a special place in my heart for what I learned from you oh so long ago. Rest now in peace with our Lord and God bless your family."
"I am so sorry to hear of your loss! Melanie, for some reason I was thinking of you tonight so I looked for you and found this. Ironically, my dad passed on the same day as your dad. Karma can be crazy. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Lisa (Wagner) Wilson"

Class of 1956 Saint Peters Merchantville, NJ! One in a million, we always had a great time! Remember when we made rope bridells, skipped school, and went down to sombodys farm on Church Road and rode their horses all day? Think we forgot to ask them for permission?"
"Menotti, what a hoot. I could always count on you for a smile and a good laugh. I truly enjoyed your company at the office, and as with all the other members of your family, the care and concern you showed for me and my family will always be remembered and cherished.
Rest in peace my friend."
"God Bless and Keep you all in his Arms! Indians Mills and the racetrack will never be the same. A great Man, great Jock , great Horseman! Buone Noche!"
"Menotti ...those were the years at St Peters. as you grew older, you lived, laughed and loved all those surrounding you. Those ponies you so enjoyed sitting there in your racing silks... life gave to you many joys and accomplishments. prayers and thoughts are with your family now that memories will be treasured. Rest in peace... Menotti"
